What has happened here?
It seems GStreamer 0.10 has been removed from F31 prior to release, but
only partially, breaking dependencies, leaving behind packages that
cannot be installed. And packagers have not been warned/informed either.
# dnf install gstreamer-plugins-base

Problem: conflicting requests

gstreamer has once removed from distro due to FTBFS policy.
And perhaps it is found that this package was still needed
and the retirement got reverted,
and actually after that gstreamer-0.10.36-24.fc31 was rebuild:
gstreamer-plugins-base was the same: it got removed due to FTBFS policy,
and retirement was reverted. What is interesting is that

revert), gstreamer-0.10.36-18.fc27 from F27 (!) was used according to
Then gstreamer-plugins-base-0.10.36-24.fc31 was submitted to bodhi, however
it seems submitting gstreamer-0.10.36-24.fc31 was forgotton.
